Seahawks head coach Pete Carroll says a third Super Bowl run with Seattle ‘is coming’

Seahawks head coach Pete Carroll says a third Super Bowl run with Seattle 'is coming'It's been five years since Seattle was one-yard shy of repeating as champion Pete Carroll didn't spend much time celebrating his inclusion in the recently unveiled NFL 2010s All-Decade Team. Instead, the 68-year-old head coach of the Seahawks is focused on getting back to a Super Bowl, a place he and his team hasn't been since the end of the 2014 season. "We ain't got back (to a Super Bowl) yet," Carroll recently said during an interview with NFL.com's Michael Silver. "We've still gotta get back there and go get that game again. And it's coming." Carroll is one of just six active head coaches that has led his team to a Super Bowl victory. In 2013, his fourth year in Seattle, his Seahawks pummeled Peyton Manning and the Broncos in Super Bowl XLVIII. Carroll also belongs to a much smaller group of coaches, the ones who lost the Super Bowl a year after winni..

Phil Simms breaks down Tom Brady’s legacy and fit with Bruce Arians in Tampa Bay

Phil Simms breaks down Tom Brady's legacy and fit with Bruce Arians in Tampa BaySimms thinks Brady and Arians are going to make quite the pair Quarterback Tom Brady has been the storyline of the 2020 offseason. After an illustrious career with the New England Patriots, Brady is packing up all his trophies and heading south to take over the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. The surprising move brought forth many questions: Why? Why now at 42 years old? Were there problems with Bill Belichick? Brady sat down with Howard Stern on Wednesday to flesh out all that has happened over the past few years, but some still find it hard to believe the future Pro Football Hall of Famer would want to leave the only NFL home he had ever known to play for a team that hasn't reached the postseason in over a decade. What will this do to his legacy, and can he find success in Bruce Arians' system? This week, CBS Sports analyst and legendary New York Giants quarterback Phil Simms sat down with Will Br..

2020 NFL Draft: Bengals’ Zac Taylor feels ‘very, very comfortable’ with virtual draft

2020 NFL Draft: Bengals' Zac Taylor feels 'very, very comfortable' with virtual draftTaylor does not share many of the concerns about the virtual draft that other coaches do The coronavirus pandemic has forced the NFL to try out something it never has before: going 100 percent virtual. Earlier this week, NFL commissioner Roger Goodell announced that the NFL will hold a virtual draft with team personnel separately located in their homes -- which means teams could potentially run into problems they've never encountered before during one of the most important events of the year. While several issues could arise such as videoconferencing hacking, internet outages or power outages, Cincinnati Bengals head coach Zac Taylor is more excited than he is apprehensive. "I think our guys have really embraced it and done a good job of adjusting," Taylor said during a virtual press conference on Wednesday. "We're excited to see what the draft looks like this way. I know th..

Agent’s Take: Breaking down who will be the next franchise-tagged player to be traded

Agent's Take: Breaking down who will be the next franchise-tagged player to be traded The franchise tag is a powerful management tool that restricts a team's best free agent in a given year from entering the open market regardless of whether he is a true marquee player. It can also hinder the ability to gain long term security. Most players prefer a chance to test the open market over receiving a franchise player designation. The tag has been characterized as a high salaried one-year "prove it" deal, where the risk of serious injury and poor performance must be incurred again after completing a contract when a multi-year agreement can't be reached. A new trend has started developing over the last couple of years that's a win-win situation for the franchise player and the designating team. Franchise player trades are on the rise. There hadn't been a franchise player trade in nearly a decade until the Dolphins dealt wide receiver Jarvis Landry to the Browns in..

Zac Taylor says A.J. Green is finally healthy after missing 2019 season: 'Everything has been positive'The Bengals are hoping Green can return to form in 2020 The Cincinnati Bengals have made some important signings in free agency so far this offseason, but one interesting move they made was placing the franchise tag on wide receiver A.J.

Samson: Why it appears that Tom Brady had an issue with Bill BelichickDavid Samson weighed in on Brady's Howard Stern interview and recent Players' Tribune article There has been a lot of talk about Tom Brady's decision to leave the New England Patriots throughout the offseason. On Wednesday, Brady was interview by Howard Stern just two days after penning a piece for the Players' Tribune about his free agency decision. In Wednesday's installment of "Nothing Personal with David Samson," David Samson spoke on Brady's recent comments in both areas and how it appears that he may have had an issue with Patriots head coach Bill Belichick. "Brady only mentioned Bill Belichick's name one time in that letter," Samson said. "It was so back-handed. He said that Bill Belichick didn't even call him when he was drafted. What happened is that he made it so obvious in this letter that he had a problem with Belichick and he had a problem with that relationship...
